In 1968 when this song came out I was just a little kid, about 7 or 8.  My brother joined the army and went away forever.  It just came over me like a wave, watching him walk out the door in his uniform on his way to Vietnam.  I was just a little kid.

Something that has bothered me since I first saw this album art:

What is that "pile of red stuff" in the foreground of the album cover? Is it a pile of natural-casing hot dogs? What is it supposed to represent?

I like this song, but I'm not sure if there's any song I'd want to hear every day for the next four years...well, except maybe "Java" by Al Hirt.

The Youngbloods from 1968 (thanks Wikipedia) ... so why do they have The Stig with them!!!  Is that early Clarkson and May in the background?

This came on this weekend while I was browsing Ace Hardware. I think I startled the ladies to my right when I suddenly whispered along with the song

if you hear the song I sing you will understand LISTEN

For me, this is the archetypal '60s song.  It's about peace, love, understanding, with some groovy '60s guitar riffs, from a San Francisco band.  Puts a smile on my face.

If the "civilized world" has, in its blind march toward the future, simply walked on past the sentiment expressed so beautifully by this song I fear that true humanity may all, indeed, be lost forever.

The next generations forget if they haven't lived it, and today you have a corporate infotainment media pounding them non-stop, owned by sociopaths that have a stake in the wars and fascist insanity for profit. Same shit, different decade. Example: General Electric owns NBC, also makes nuclear power plants and engines for military aircraft. That's the spin we'll get on the idiot box.

I was military in the early 80's but then we had the USSR holding us back. Today's military is not the one I was in, and I'd never support what it's done since the Neo Cons usurped our foreign policy in 2000 and invented "turrurrism" for one-size-fits-all perpetual conflict. They make Nixon look like Little Bo Peep. I'd have to go AWOL.

A Shrub says the Turrur Alert color today is Orange, but don't worry just go shopping while Smooth Black Dude says yeah we tortured a few folks, but hey we hear ya! At least NSA and AT&T does...

There's no draft, but they dreamt up Stop Loss instead. Convenient to keep the middle-class mom's out of the streets and screaming to Congress (what Congress?) that their kids are forced into needless wars. You can bet if there was a draft, the U.S. in the Middle East would have stopped long ago and probably no 9/11 but the Neo Cons learned their lessons from Vietnam: keep the economy fairly bad and you'll have plenty of under-employed cannon fodder for imperialism.

America should be ashamed, and throw the bastards out.

Bums me out that Jesse Colin-Young is hardly known by most of the people I know.  I'll say, "...but remember Jesse Colin-Young's music" and they say..."Who?"   :(  I check on him on the web now and again, know that he is alive, thinking he is still performing, but one just never hears about him anymore.  His work with the Youngbloods and on his own are both great!

I was struggling once, awhile back, and a dear friend put this song on and played it over the phone for me.

"...LISTEN: you hold the key to love and fear ...just one key unlocks them both..."

It was a beautiful gesture and a lovely moment.  And yeah, it made a difference.

This song, many other songs, many rallies, a few dead protesters, it all eventually pushed the USA to withdraw from Vietnam with its tail between its legs.  

The USA continues to kill large numbers of innocent civilians but it is getting increasingly difficult and costly to do so.

Come on, peace, love and understanding are boring.  We need more extremes.  That's cool!  More hate, haters, hater haters, fear, villains, heroes, idols,  "war on ____", actual wars, bombs,...  Sorry for the sarcastic rant, but sometimes the truth is just too boring.
